    Great hidden gem in Brixton. The food was excellent and service was friendly and efficient. I loved the decor too I didn't try them but the cocktails also looked good

    It’s perfect for boozy, craziness. But you definitely need to be a bit piddled to deal with the ambiance and the not-quite up to par Dim Sum. Considering it’s a London staple 😆

    The service here is outrageously shocking. Upon being seated we were met with awful attitude from a reed haired waitress. She failed to explain the online order system of not paying when putting an order in otherwise it closes the order sheet for anyone else ordering. Her exact words “well why did you close the tab” amazing! Drinks are half full. £20 extra to watch the dinner show. Which is usually a standard any other place where they advertise a show with your meal. They take care of people watching the show and the rest are treated like mud! Don’t waste your money !

    Possibly the best dim sum I have ever had in London, which is remarkable really. Everything is extremely well done, with beautiful glassware, wonderful surroundings, and delicious food. Probably the best thing about Courtesan is the people that work there though. So friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. I loved the whole thing.

    Really lovely set up, great decor. We went on a Sunday night which was nice and quiet, would love to come back for their burlesque nights! Staff were fabulous and welcoming! Pity about the move to electronic ordering, thus the mark down on Service -- staff just served food and that was it! Personally, I love eating out to avoid using the phone -- we spend too much time on those things these days, it would be nice to not need to use it!! Beautiful find, excellent food, recommend! <3
